Attitudinal change will relieve a professional from stress and improve his or her overall performance, S. Kadiravan, Professor, Department of Psychology, Periyar University, Salem, said here on Sunday.

Speaking on ‘Stress and its Management’, organised by Salem Reporters Clubs at the Press Campus in Collectorate complex, he said that increase in stress level for media persons affects both their job and their family life.

Hence to have a balancing act, there needs to be an attitudinal change among those who work round-the-clock, he added further.

Mr. Kadiravan explained the factors that attribute to the stress for working professionals and measures to overcome it for effective stress management.

In addition to this, he also demonstrated a few simple exercises that one can routinely do at their home in a few minutes so as to make them physically and mentally rejuvenated to carry out their hectic schedule.
